Abstract Sex* @ Hessel Museum, May 8 – 29

, 6 May 2016

The Abstract Sex* group exhibition is on at New York’s the Hessel Museum of Art at Center for Curatorial Studies (CSS Bard), Bard College, opening May 8 and running to May 29.

Curated by Dana Kopel, the show features Juliette Bonneviot, Jesse Darling, Dorota Gaweda, Egle Kulbokaite, and Marian Tubbs and aims to reconceptualize “sex in the biopolitical regime”, going beyond the veneer of a coherent body or self within an organic model of a society.

The title is inspired by Goldsmiths digital media theorist Luciana Parisi’s rethinking of notions of sex and gender on biological and cultural terms and posits a “post-sex adequate to a radically expanded conception of what it is to be human”.
